There's four games in particular - John Curtis Christian, Archbishop Rummel, St. Paul's, and Ponchatoula - that should yield an exciting battle on the line of scrimmage for Dragna (6-foot-2, 290 pounds).
"I'm really excited about the John Curtis game," said Dragna. "We have the chance to be the first senior class at Mandeville to beat Curtis. There's 75 days from now until the game and we're making every day count. I know that they have a good linebacker/defensive end in Seth Jones. I expect the best from both teams in that game.
"Johnny Bertucci, who is one of Rummel's defensive tackles, has been at every camp this summer that I've attended. We've squared off in drills at some of the camps."
Curtis and Rummel are both non-district games for Mandeville, while St. Paul's and Ponchatoula are District 7-3A opponents.
"I'm looking forward to the St. Paul's game," said Dragna, who will face blue-chip defensive tackle Mickey Johnson in that contest. "I know that the stands will be filled with scouts and I hope to rise to the challenge.
"Ponchatoula has a defensive tackle, Jonathan Kinchen, who is strong as an ox. He's a big, strong kid and that should be a good game. I also went at it last year with their inside linebacker, Kaleb Muse. He's a good kid who is pretty physical."
"I felt like I did a very good job in the one-on-one drills at the Tech camp. I had a phenomenal time at Tulane. I went with Greg Siener, who is a teammate of mine, and we toured the facilities and talked with Coach Hutson, the offensive line coach.
"Arkansas State really wants me to go up there during the last week in July and so I'm going to travel up there. Louisiana-Lafayette has also been in contact and I'm going there on July 18th."
Dragna hopes to receive his first offer soon, but he's determined to keep a positive attitude throughout the process.
"I have to be patient. Some schools want to come watch me during the season before they make a decision. God will make a way."
